PALM BAY, Fla. -- Stratos Lightwave Inc. is introducing a new family of Multimode optical transceivers for the Fast Ethernet and OC-3 data rates. Stratos Lightwave has added the Transmit Disable Function, previously available only in Fast Ethernet and OC-3 Single Mode Transceivers, to its family of LED-based Multimode 2x5 Small Form Factor transceivers. These MSA-compliant, duplex LC-interface transceivers are ideal for the next generation of Wide and Metropolitan Area Networking equipment applications. Many Wide Area and Metropolitan Area Networking applications implement APS (Automatic Protection Switching), or N+1 port redundancy, which requires a Transmit Disable Function. The addition of the Transmit Disable Function to the Multimode 2x5 Small Form Factor (SFF) transceivers enables drop-in replacement to the existing 2x5 SFF Single Mode Transceiver footprints, offering instant upgrade capability for Multimode applications. All Stratos Lightwave Multimode transceivers are available for standard Commercial temperature (0 degrees to +70 degrees C) or Industrial temperature (-40 degrees to +85 degrees C) rating applications. These transceivers exhibit exceptionally low levels of jitter over the full Bellcore operating temperature range of -40 degrees to +85 degrees C. Stratos Lightwave Inc.
